2020 Columbus and Franklin County Addiction Plan Information
As the opiate epidemic evolved, the City of Columbus and Franklin County developed the second generation of Columbus and Franklin County Addiction Plan (CFCAP), formerly the Franklin County Opiate Action Plan, to cover all types of substances that lead to addiction, as both national and local statistics continue to show that many illicit drugs contribute to unnecessary death. To support this work, the Plan was renamed the Columbus and Franklin County Addiction Plan (CFCAP) in February 2019, and—with input from experts in the field of addiction, mental health, public health, community outreach and public safety—clarified its objectives, tactics and goals to address the changing landscape of addiction in our community.
The Three Goals Are:
- Decrease overdose deaths by 15%
- Decrease overdoses by 15%
- Decrease the rate of Infectious Diseases by 10%.
The Plan structure was formalized by a commitment from community leaders and agencies across the spectrum to continue addressing and solving the opiate and addiction problem using a well-ordered form of collaboration. To view the 2020 Columbus and Franklin County Addiction Plan please here:
